Re: achilles tendonitis

From your description, it is possible you have more than achilles tendonitis. A partial tear may have occured. I would recommend at least a diagnostic ultrasound and possibly a MRI to see this better. X-rays will not show a soft tissue problem. You might have a fracture of your big toe thopugh and an x-ray would be indicated.

Overall, if my suspicions were correct, I would recommend you be in a cast boot to immobilize everything.

As for responding to you other concerns, I really would need to take a history and examine you first. I recommend you be seen ( and it doesn't have to be me- I do this as a service, not necessarily to get patients, since I have a disclaimer on the site.)

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
